The Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum, like many community groups, uses St. Jude’s Parish Hall for programs and other events.  Unfortunately the lack of a sound system has made it difficult to hear in this large building.  On October 12th we come together as a community to raise the funds necessary to purchase a sound system so that the parish hall can serve the entire community for many years to come.
